I finally found someone that has a Versys 650 so I could sit on it to see if I could flat foot with my boots are it's similar to the X 300. You can see my X 300 parked in the background in the wider picture.
The guy was really cool, a friend of someone in my family who also rides. I was offered the chance to ride it around the block but declined: I might become addicted without warning.
Definitely a nice bike. While I like my X 300, I would love to have the 650, too. Makes me greedy and selfish.
So be it.
I also tossed the bike gently side-to-side and the weight doesn't seem bad compared to the 300.
And, I think the 2nd Gen dropped some weight if I'm not mistaken so that one must be even better but I'd take this one though.
The guy's 650 is a 2014 model, 1st Gen I think, right?
He was looking at the T-Rex crash bars I put on mine and said he would check them out online. He also rode my X 300 and said he like it.
I realized he didn't flat foot on the bike though, he was all tippy toes but managed the bike well anyway.
We went on a little ride by the water and someone with us fished and caught a fluke. Two Versys, one BMW Nine T and a Can Am Spyder.
We stopped by a dealer and I tried to sit on a new V-Strom XT for comparison, and was hanging off of it. I was afraid to stand the bike upright. I like Kawasaki anyway
